Virginia School District Restores Names Of Confederate Generals To Public Schools – By Hank Berrien (Daily Wire) / May 10, 2024

A Virginia school district became the first in the United States to restore the school names associated with the Confederacy after they had been changed.

In 2020, the Shenandoah County School Board voted to change the names of Stonewall Jackson High School and Ashby-Lee Elementary School to Mountain View High School and Honey Run Elementary School. However, local residents felt that the board had voted to change the names without consulting the public. On May 9, the board held a public hearing to discuss changing the names back, and in a 5-1 vote, approved changing the names back to their original names.

The board members in favor of restoring the previous names contended that the 2020 school board had taken shortcuts in order to achieve their goal. “This was not an innocent mistake by some inexperienced school board,” District 2 School Board member Gloria Carlineo said, as reported by WHSV. “No, this was a carefully choreographed advance of a school board alluding to ignore the people they represented.”
